Qataris find effective, compassionate, and affordable rehab treatment for drug addiction at The Cabin Chiang Mai
Qatar is a nation of diversity, expatriates, and interesting extremes. While the country is certainly still quite conservative and most residents still follow the strict strand of Wahhabi Islam, over the past twenty years, modernization efforts have brought thousands of foreigners to the area. This has transformed the capital city, Doha, into a bustling metropolis with a skyline full of high-reaching skyscrapers, fancy hotels, and vibrant nightclubs. But, all of this expansion has led to an influx of people who, unfortunately, have brought with them a greater tolerance for illegal drugs. Interestingly, expatriates now outnumber locals by an approximate 4:1 ratio in Qatar, with most of them living in the capital city of Doha. To accommodate these newcomers to Qatar, a manmade island off the coast of Doha was constructed, called the Pearl, and has become a vibrant gathering place for those who want to party with friends.
It is much easier for non-Muslims to drink in Qatar. Unlike neighbouring countries that require permits to drink and charge up to 100% in alcohol taxes, all that is needed to drink in Qatar is an ID card. Unfortunately, drug abuse is becoming far too prevalent in Qatar, with the country’s Supreme Council of Health indicating that up to 5% of Qatar’s population likely has a drug or alcohol addiction problem. Unlike many neighbouring countries that are seeing problems with drugs like opiates, heroin, cocaine, and more, many Qataris are found to be abusing more common items as part of their addiction. For instance, abusing common household vitamins is becoming more and more prevalent and just as dangerous as some of the more popular illegal drugs on the international market.
The government of Qatar has established a 250-bed treatment centre to tackle this problem head-on, but due to the social stigma of announcing an alcohol or drug addiction, most individuals do not seek treatment and local treatment options unfortunately offer only short-term, spiritually-based, addiction rehab programs that have a low success rate. Qataris who desire drug addiction treatment services are now more likely to choose treatment overseas. And a leading choice for those who seek the absolute finest in drug dependency rehabilitation at an affordable price is The Cabin Chiang Mai.
Why The Cabin is the right choice for Qataris
Patients who choose The Cabin Chiang Mai to combat their drug addiction will find a world-class treatment and rehabilitation centre that is located in a beautiful corner of Thailand in the city of Chiang Mai. This location is ideal because of its position right along the famous Ping River, where patients will find a soothing environment, Thai-style bungalow accommodations, and a peaceful and relaxing energy that helps their journey toward an addiction-free lifestyle.
To make the program as effective as possible, patients can choose from either an English or Arabic-speaking rehab program. They are facilitated by either English or Arabic-speaking professionals, and Western-style treatment options are seamlessly combined with holistic elements to create a treatment process that results in a 96% success rate. The English-language program combines standard treatment steps, physical therapy, holistic treatments, and more, and draws upon the expertise of therapists, drug addiction counsellors, medical doctors, and concierge staff. While the Arabic-language rehab process employs the use of native Arabic-speakers who fully understand the cultural needs and sensitivities of our Qatari patients. From family inclusion practices to offering halal foods, the Arabic-language treatment program offers the same high standards of treatment as our English-language program and remains culturally sensitive at all times.
Patients at The Cabin Chiang Mai will have a full agenda during their drug addiction rehab treatment, but they’ll also have an opportunity to explore the local area and participate in many planned outings. The city of Chiang Mai is rich with historical sites, ancient temples and ruins, and also offers a whole host of contemporary entertainment venues that offer a wide range of things to do – from elephant rides to zip-lining through the jungle canopy. Patients will reside comfortably within private, Thai-style bungalows during their stay at The Cabin, and the serene setting and lush, tropical foliage provides the perfect backdrop for an effective rehab program.
